The Story That Haunts

Tell me the story of the past
Describe how it felt
When you were giving up yet smiling
When you were empty yet laughing
*
Show me how your demons haunt you
Please don’t hide from me
Describe the voice you hear
The voices which tear you apart
As you come undone from every seam
*
Tell us how your heart quakes
Tell us how you managed to get your words straight
Describe your untold hardship
The very ones which keep you awake at night.
